a little bit more maybe off the wall sometimes. american type do this, repeat the same experiment. and what the american type does is the american type put us in here and gets a scratch there. and he doesn't have to call it zero. you call any number you want, really? so long as you make them all the same way. give me a number, a random. 32. all right, 32. you could call that 32, okay? i mean, what's so special about zero, yeah? now, you put this in the boiling water, in the 32, bang, bang, bang. now, you put it in boiling water, bang, bang, bang, we're really hitting, huh? or--climb up, scratch, if you want to put a hundred there. if you want to wimp out and put a hundred like everyone else does, go ahead. but let's suppose you say, "let's get off the beaten path." take any--give me a number, random, any number. 212. all right, 212. all right, 212. all right. now, what do we call that thermometer? an american thermometer, okay? [laughter] well, that-- and what we're saying is the boiling point of water is 212 degrees and the freezing point of water is 32 degrees, okay? now, here is the problem, gang. you got to cut up equal number-- you got scratches in there.
